About RIHousing LeadSafe Homes Program

We work in partnership with the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) to help property owners across the state address lead paint and other health hazards in their homes.

An estimated 70% of the state’s housing stock was built prior to 1978, when lead was eliminated from paint. Lead exposure can cause lifelong health issues and can be harmful to young children and pregnant women.
